Week Before Valentine's 2011

The whole week before Valentine's Day started out beautifully for me.
  • I managed to finish work on time.
  • I was able to go to VTRs/auditions.
  • I got in contact with some of my colleagues in the theater industry which I have been planning for a while now. I know I need to further hone my acting skills and hopefully I find the right theater company for me. If only my schedule is not this toxic (I barey sleep as usual), I'd gladly join PETA. It's on my wish list this year.
  • The universe must be listening to my heart's plea when I was given an opportunity to showcase my talent in a video shoot. Honestly, despite my lack of sleep, that was the first time I felt really alive and exhilarated after a looong time. It's really different when you're doing your heart's desire. You don't feel tired, you don't feel short changed. You're just grateful, happy and feeling blessed. Hayyyy....Acting... it's the only one in my long list of passions that I have a love-hate relationship with. Let's just say that I'm in love with it again. Last year, I dodged most of the VTRs my agents sent me to coz I just didn't feel like it. After all, the business of acting is 10% acting and 90% waiting. Nevertheless, this year, if I physically can, I should just say yes to every acting opportunity.
  • I made concrete steps to start a career in training. And guess what? The people I'd be working with are mostly theater actors too. I feel that where I'm headed at this point in time is just so aligned with my inner desires. Hopefully, when this new career path gets lucrative enough, I can use big funds for my other passions like soap making, reselling clothes and making beaded accessories which I will turn into regular businesses as well. *Crossing my fingers*

So my week was going well until a little bump appeared. My mom got food poisoned... Thank God and thanks to my brother and sister she's okay now.

Peter and I were able to continue our plan for Valentine's weekend. Thanks to his cousin, Raoul, we got a free night stay here at Mandarin Oriental Hotel.

Thanks to my other cousins-in-law and Tita Ellie for the home-made Apple Pie and Chorizo from Laoag. Another blessing came and a little angel sponsored my shopping spree. This angel wanted to buy me some high-end stuff from Prada, Hermes or even just Zara. But because I'm a fashion recessionista at heart, I couldn't bear the thought of spending that much money on just one expensive thing. So we headed to Landmark instead and took everything that I can get in four hours ( I started shopping at 5pm), that fit me of course. So now I have a whole new wardrobe for the whole year. LOL. Really, thank you dear angel for this early birthday gift. Can we do shoes naman tomorrow? Hehehe. Abusado. ^_^

We were just in Greenbelt the rest of the time. We had coffee/tea/pomegranate shake at Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, Oysters and beer at Via Mare, 3 kinds of soup (carrot & squash, light onion, minestrone) Osso Bucco, Salmon Rockefeller, Slow Cooked Lamb Shank and coffee at Chateau 1771. My resolve to diet again went down the drain. We went back to our hotel room satiated, happy and thankful for all the blessings. I wasn't expecting all of these things. My only plan was to work the entire Valentine weekend. But I guess my guardian angel wanted to reward me for my good deeds and hard work. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! ^_^

Maybe it's just the angle sis but thanks for thinking so.:) I got side tracked in my diet and exercise routine since this month has been so hectic for me. I'm hoping to make up for it big time this coming week. I need to lose weight. Hehe.
